A Deeper Look at the Whole School Approach to Behavior | MindShift | KQED News
Essien got all his teachers trained in de-escalation tactics. They learned about how nonverbal communication, tone, volume, cadence, word choice and proximity work to either escalate or de-escalate a situation. Now, when a teacher sees that a student has become escalated, rather than engaging with her and potentially worsening the situation, teachers pick up the phone, call the office for a push-in, and go back to teaching. The support staff all carry walkie-talkies where they receive the call and they respond on a rotation.

“The idea of going to the room and the push-in is to help the teacher repair the damage, the harm that has been done, the disturbance, whatever you want to call it, in the class,” said Antoinette Marracq, who was head counselor at MLK during this transition. When support staff show up in class they can either take over supervising the lesson so the teacher can step out into the hallway and resolve the issue with the student, or intervene themselves. The hope is to help de-escalate the situation and get the student back into class and learning.

Millennials are killing libraries now : MurderedByWords
Person 1:
Kids are not smarter than ever. They merely have more opportunities, and better, quicker access to information. Next time you need to do any research, try using a library instead of asking Alexa, or having it on a plate. Try WORKING for it.

Person 2:
more chess grand masters, higher graduation rates, higher literacy rates, more olympic world records, more willing to advance their society (despite apparently being stuck in their phone), 8 MLB pitchers with +100MPH pitches, 10 millennials are on the forbes richest list, previously-thought impossible classical music pieces are regularly played by young performers (according to the new yorker), michael phelps holds the all time olympic medal record

If you want to insist on people doing research, maybe do some yourself.

Litvinenko and the Demise of British Justice | OffGuardian
by James O’Neill February 11th, 2016 In the wake of the bizarre and troubling elisions and falsehoods already apparent in the Skripal case, it seems an opportune time to revisit the equally controversial case of Alexander Litvinenko, the former KGB officer and employee of Boris Berezovsky, allegedly poisoned with polonium on orders of the Kremlin in 2006. In a companion piece to our earlier study by British lawyer Alexander Mercouris, here barrister James O’Neill gives his own opinion on the case The publication on 21 January 2016 of the report by British Judge Sir Robert Owen on the death of Alexander Litvinenko was predictably seized upon by anti-Russian elements as confirmation of their conviction that Russia in general and President Putin in particular were the personification of modern day evil. Almost completely absent amidst the anti-Russian hysteria was any perspective on the history of Mr Litvinenko1; the circumstances leading up to his death; and any understanding of what a totally flawed exercise Owen’s inquiry actually was. Who Was Alexander Litvinenko? Litvinenko was generally described in … via Litvinenko and the Demise of British Justice

The Ignoble Lie | Patrick J. Deneen
Campaigns for equality that focus on the inclusion of identity groups rather than examinations of the class divide permit an extraordinary lack of curiosity about complicity in a system that secures elite status across generations. Concern for diversity and inclusion on the basis of “ascriptive” features—race, gender, disability, or sexual orientation—allows the ruling class to overlook class while focusing on unchosen forms of identity. Diversity and inclusion fit neatly into the meritocratic structure, leaving the structure of the new aristocratic order firmly in place.
